So about our kitchen facilities....at Chef Camp, we do things a little differently than most other culinary instructional programs... but there truly is a "method to our madness"!...
The Chef Camp Home Kitchen - Cooking Skills To Use At Home: We know that part of your/your teen’s success will be in being able to come home and recreate the foods, cooking methods, and kitchen skills they learned after the session is over. We recognize that, after camp, most of our aspiring chefs are going to be cooking in their own home kitchens for their families and friends. And, that most camper families don’t have commercial kitchen equipment in their homes….
As such, we intentionally utilize a typical home kitchen and standard equipment usually found at home in our culinary instruction. The “Chef Camp Home Kitchen” concept helps ensure participants can take those skills learned at camp home, and continue to experience cooking success after camp!
Further, we know that becoming a great chef doesn't take costly equipment, and we never want access to commercial kitchen equipment to be an economic barrier to participating in the culinary arts for any teen! (and, really, the last thing you need is for your teen to return home and announce they can't make something because you dont have a thousand dollar whatsit in your kitchen...)
Through the field trips, participants may gain exposure to commercial kitchen settings.
